*Alex Barron got first-team reps at right tackle over Robert Brewster. Coach Wade Phillips said on Monday that Barron would start Saturday's game at Houston. While most of the players didn't have their ankles taped, Barron had both ankles taped. He's coming off a sprained ankle. Brewster, meanwhile, received reps at left tackle on the second team.
*Tight end Martin Rucker, who was signed last week, saw some reps with the second team. On a goalline play, H back Jason Pociask was with the first-team in a two-tight end set.
*With Keith Brooking out, Sean Lee lined up with Bradie James as a first-team inside linebacker. Lee practiced with his left hand wrapped. It didn't seem to give him any problems.
*The slow pace of the practice bothered offensive coordinator Jason Garrett a little because he made the offense run the same play twice after it repeated the same mistake.
